“This book melts your brain and rocks your body. It’s how sci-fi is supposed to be. I can’t wait to see this turned into an epic TV series or a feature film. Once NLV gets a hold of you, you’ll never be free!”~Daniel G. Thron - Director, Spoiler
Welcome to The NLV Project! Held within these pages is everything you’ll need to know about the most dominant, most glamorous, and most insane city on Earth in the year 2054: NLV.
NLV cover art — created by Daniel G. Thron
What is NLV?NLV (the nickname for New Las Vegas) is the province where dreams are made but more often shattered into a million bits, a place of temptation beyond the wildest fantasies of human indulgence, a place of sin, a place of avarice, a place of lust, a place of sensual science and technology taken to its wickedest extremes, and a place where the very fabric of what makes us human is torn apart and resewn into a pale façade of Babylonian extents.
Set in the year 2054 in the largest most powerful city on Earth, NLV is a wild and dark glimpse into humankind’s future. The stories held within these chapters and volumes revolve around people ordinary and extraordinary. People who struggle to survive, keep their sanity, and maintain their last shreds of humanity in an ever-changing world ruled by endless entertainment, mountains of money, ruthless power, and rampant technology.
Available only via eBook download, the story is told in a serialized fashion like the old-school sci-fi writers like Asimov and Burroughs but instead of releasing it a chapter at a time in anthologies or magazines, author Nicholas Iandolo will be using the modern day equivalent and publishing NLV one chapter at a time on the amazing new eBook digital platforms such as: Kindle, iPad/iPhone, and NOOK (see links below).

SPECIAL 2013 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON DEAL!
As the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con mega event is imminent, we at The NLV Project have decided to offer a special pricing deal for Chapter One: The House Always Wins.
We were planning on integrating both parts of The House Always Wins into a single whole integrated chapter. Originally, when Chapter One was written it wasn't intended to be in two parts. The whole chapter is 100 pages long (just like Chapter Two: Double Down). However, PK thought it would be great for the attendees of the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con to get a taste of NLV's first exciting chapter for a minimal cost. And that was a hit! Over a thousand downloads three weeks after that Comic-Con!
We're so excited about this year's Comic-Con that we've decided to hold off for a little longer on the Chapter One integration project and keep it in two parts so that Comic-Con attendees who are new to NLV can again enjoy a taste of NLV's first kick-ass chapter, The House Always Wins, for a minimal cost.
Here's what we're pricing it at:
- Chapter One: The House Always Wins — Part I for only 99 cents!
- Chapter One: The House Always Wins — Part II for only $2.99!
That's as low as we can go and still keep our efforts focused on bringing the NLV fans more chapters, and all the other future stages of The NLV Project as well.
If you're new to NLV, from now until the end of the summer, you're gonna get the first 50 pages of kick-ass non-stop epic sci-fi action/adventure for less than a cup of decent coffee!
See you at Comic-Con!!!!!

In anticipation of the Chapter One Integration Project, new eBook cover titles for that chapter have been created. Some time in Fall 2013 readers new to NLV who purchase the full whole single first chapter (no parts) will see the following for the book cover. Thanks again to Sue for killer new titles!
We'd like to thank our readers who were so kind in purchasing both parts of Chapter One: The House Always Wins. As I stated above, it was a way to give readers a taste of what NLV is all about. In the future we may decide to offer sample excerpts here on the site or through what Amazon, Apple, and B&N have to offer for book sample options.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Well my fellow Denizens of NLV, I've got two new pages for The NLV Project website:
A Contact Us!
page where readers, fans, or interested parties can easily reach us. Our email addresses are listed on the The NLV Team
page but for those with mobile devices who just want to shoot us a quick enquiry, hopefully the contact form will do the trick. Also, there's a call for some pro bono help with The NLV Project
. We're looking for graphic artists
and a PR intern
—visit the page for more details.
Also, there's an NLV Project Research
page where we're putting out requests for various technical advisors as I continue to write the next chapters of NLV. And when I say technical I'm not just talking about science and engineering, I'm talking about all kinds of subject matter experts. For The Pit Boss
, I'm looking to talk to a real pit boss, a Vegas showgirl, and a resident of Las Vegas. See the page for more details.
And for all of you waiting with bated breath for the next killer chapter of NLV, I'm about a third of the way done with the first draft of chapter three, The Pit Boss!
It's coming along great and there are definitely some crazy surprises in it that's even surprising me!

I want to take a moment here to reflect upon the tragic events this past Monday at Boston's 117th running of its world-famous Marathon.
Having been born in Boston, and being a Boston-based author, I am heartbroken that this horrific event has happened in my city. It is a human travesty when this kind of callous and inhuman heinous act of terrorism happens anywhere but when it happens so close to home, words cannot describe the horror and pain.
All of us here at the NLV Project extend our deepest condolences to the victims of this god-awful bombing and to their families. Our prayers and thoughts are with you, the resilient people of Boston, and America.
With deepest sorrow,
April 7, 2013
Well, I decided I couldn't wait any longer. I was just comping at the bit, so I've started writing NLV — The Pit Boss
! Already, I'm loving this story. I can't wait to see where it takes me. There's so many good things I've got planned for this one baby! Get psyched!
Also, PK and I have got a few other NLV-related things in the works. Stay tuned, there'll be some awesome announcements coming!

NLV — Double Down is now live!!!
I'll be adding the Other eBook Platforms link next week.
I'll be formally updating the NLV Project website within a few days.
But at long last here it is baby!!!

My super awesomely talented filmmaker and artist friend Dan Thron
has just created the killer cover art
for Double Down
! He has captured the essence of the story beautifully. As busy as he is becoming a successful director in Hollywood, he so graciously donated his precious time to help out The NLV Project with his kick-ass artwork! I am honored to have his designs grace the cover of my books.
He's got the NLV motif down perfectly!!!
See the big graphic at the top of the page for new eBook's cover art. And then head over to the new NLV Artwork
page to see Dan's artwork for The House Always Wins
Now get ready, because the release of Double Down is very, very soon!
March 16, 2013
The final draft of Double Down
is done and done baby!!! It's ready for publication! Oh my God what a long run this has been. I've written my heart out on this book. And I really hope that my readers will love it. I truly believe it is a worthy successor to The House Always Wins.
It is packed with intrigue and adventure, and yet it is its own unique story in true NLV style.
Now I've got a few more steps to go before it will finally be released to the world but those won't take long—about a week to ten days.
And then after a brief rest, it'll be time to start cranking on The Pit Boss
(click the link for the teaser).
I can't tell you how excited I am to not only have this chapter completed but how great I think it came out. And also how psyched I am that there's going to be a new NLV chapter out there. It makes the whole series even more real the way I see it.
I couldn't be happier!!!

Draft four of Double Down
is done baby! We're nearing the home stretch! Draft five is the final draft and it's essentially a proofreading draft so that'll go by pretty quickly. In draft four, I've filled in all the plot holes, read the entire book out loud for sound and flow, and cleaned up any errata along the way. The final polish is now on and that should take care of the rest. I'm hoping to finally send it to my publisher
for eBook conversion by Monday the 18th, and then about a week later it should finally, finally be up on the eBook platforms (i.e. Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Lulu).
It's been a long run for this one but I think my readers are going to love it! It tops out at exactly 100 pages (like both parts of The House Always Wins
combined). It's going to be a single parter—which going forward the rest of the chapters will be. I'll leave The House Always Wins
as a two-parter for now as an easy way for new readers to get their feet wet in the wildly insane sci-fi world of NLV
Stay tuned, the next chapter is imminent!!!
February 25, 2013
Draft three of Double Down
is done! This was what I call in my revision process a technical draft
because this is where all of the research, technical advice, and story arc elements are incorporated into this draft. Everything that I need to say is in this draft. And boy do I say a lot! In the acknowledgements section of the book, I make mention of the various experts in gambling, science, and other matters whose expertise I drew upon to bring you as authentic and exhilarating a story as I could write.
Hang in there my fellow Denizens of NLV, the next chapter is only a few weeks away. I know it will be worth the wait!
January 15, 2013
Draft two of Double Down
is done! Yeah, it's taking a lot longer than expected. There have been a few delays but also the story itself is starting to really grow and take on a life of its own. And when I say the story itself, I mean all of the NLV story. Weaving in the threads that will later present themselves in the overall larger narrative is tricky and requires a lot of going back and forth—though I'm sure every other serious writer is very used to that. It's been a wonderful experience working on this particular little chapter because there are so many things in there that have personal meanings to me.
Anyway, hang in there my fellow denizens of NLV because it's coming—think Valentine's Day.
Then it will be on to Chapter Three: The Pit Boss.
BTW, Chapter Four now has a title: Face Cards. As you can see, all NLV stories have a gambling reference in their titles but those are also relevant to their stories.
Oh, and one more thing: in the coming months there's going to be a new development to Stage Three of The NLV Project. I can't say what it's going to be yet because PK and I are still conceptualizing it but when we're ready to announce what we have in mind, I'll post right here on NLVProject.com.
November 19, 2012
Draft one of Double Down
is done! I'm steadfastly working with my technical and scientific advisors to make sure my story's narrative is as authentic as possible. The reason why it's taking longer than expected is that I'm trying to write for my readers the best possible story for their money. Stay tuned, I hope to have it out before Christmas of this year.

Draft one of Double Down
